About this artwork
The front (obverse) of this coin portrays a young Antiochus facing right and wearing a diadem, the ends of which flutter behind him.
On the back (reverse) the god Apollo is depicted nude, seated on an omphalos. He holds two arrows in his extended right hand, while his lowered left arm leans on a bow which slants against his seat. His hair is rolled at the nape of his neck with two loose locks reaching his shoulders.
